Why not (if ctypes is really that important for pypy)?

We can always merge later again, keep a forked ctypes,
or whatever.

OTOH, I only have a very vague impression how ctypes could help pypy,
except for maybe bootstrapping, or accessing a small core implemented in
C. And for this, ctypes should be fine already, and, if it's not
I would like to merge your patches in.
